Open Studios Tour, Brain Reactions, Indiana Festival Theatre ’12

This week we showcase the upcoming Open Studios Tour in Bloomington and get community reactions to the Brains Extravaganza.

This week on Artworks, Bloomington’s visual artists celebrate their collective presence with the inaugural Open Studios Tour, taking place this Saturday and Sunday.

Also on the program,  the community of Bloomington reacts to the 22 brains scattered around town after living side-by-side with them for four weeks. Then, the Indiana Festival Theatre artistic director John Michaelson previews the 2012 summer season. And Adam Schwartz shares the story of set designer C. David Higgins as told in a recent book honoring his four-decade career.
